Every weekend this December, there is an opportunity for a furmeet.
Over at Marina Bay Sands is the Singapore Comic Con (SCC), held Dec 10-11.
Spanning two floors, the convention showcased toys and merchandise from popular shows.
Furries roamed the world-famous hotel and the SCC. They charmed everyone who encountered them.
What’s special is that SCC 2022 saw furries fursuiting for the first time.
This first-time furry, who donned his friend’s fursuit, told us they “felt emotional” halfway through the fursuit walk.
“I don’t know (why). I made the children happy, maybe.”
Later, when this furry took off his friend’s fursuit, he was left in a daze.
The fursuit seemed to be very impactful to him. So how did he feel when he wore it into the public earlier?
“I just felt different. I felt lighter; happier.
(I) may want to wear (the fursuit) more in the future.”
Looks like this is why fursuiting is such a ‘big thing’. It brought out the bright side of its user, no matter how quiet their real-life selves are.
Singapore Comic Con may have been just a convention for many. For the furries there at that time, it’s fun.
But for this first-time fursuiter, it’s a moment for a lifetime.
